SFUSD Expansion for 2009-2010 School Year

Facing budget cuts of $51 million over the next 16 months and increasing Kindergarten enrollment, SFUSD will increase some class sizes for the upcoming school year. SFUSD provides answers to some FAQ about this:

Which grade level class sizes will be expanded?
Due to the increase in kindergarten applications, and the limitations posed by the present budget situation, it will be necessary to expand class size in Kindergarten from 20 to 22 students. It may also be necessary to expand class size in grades 1-3. We will make that determination for Round 2 assignments, and during the summer, as new families may request spots in these grades. State funding for smaller English and Math classes in the 9th grade was cut leading to the possibility increasing these class sizes as well.


Which schools will see class sizes expanded?
Every elementary school will receive assignments of 22 students in Kindergarten, except for a small handful of schools that are required to keep their class sizes to 20 because of their participation in QEIA (Quality Education Investment Act), a state grant program.


Will the district lose state funds for expanding class sizes?
SFUSD receives some funding from the state to keep class size at 20 in Kindergarten through 3rd grade. However, the savings created by increasing class size far exceeds the small penalty for exceeding 20 students per class.

Is SFUSD opening more Kindergarten classrooms?
SFUSD is looking at opening more new kindergarten classrooms. Some schools have already added classrooms to accommodate this year’s growth in demand for Kindergarten. However, most elementary schools are fully utilized and there is no space to expand due to fire safety rules requiring Kindergarten classes be located on the ground floor of the building.
